    I am sure I have seen some people say they have found it at asda. Failing that any good butcher should be able to mince you up some l from a lean cut of lamb.

    I think turkey is a lean meat anyway so should be okay.

    Look at the fat content - <5% is extra lean - I've seen turkey mince up to 18% fat!

    yes as circes said, don't be fooled into thinking any turkey or chicken mince is extra lean, because it won't be. You need to look at the fat content or falling that make sure the mince comes from breast meat only or states extra lean clearly on the packet. Because many of the cheaper non lean varieties, can contain all parts of the carcass, including the fatty bits.

    I have just looked and the turkey mince I get is 8g fat /2g saturated fat per 100g - does this mean I should no longer get this?

    Where does everybody else get there lean mince?

    it does sound like the variety you have got is not extra lean as 8g of fat in 100g, would be 8% fat.

    this is the one you want from asda

    Turkey "breast" mince, which you know is going to be low in fat. This one is less than 3% fat

    [​IMG]


    and is only 1.3g of fat per 100g

    Don't worry - tis stuff we all need to know!

    I only buy extra lean minced beef and then chicken breasts, salmon, prawns and other fish depending on whats on offer. Wanted something different hence the lamb mince question!

    No it only applies for mince. If the mince is less than 5% fat, then you know it is extra lean, unfortunately it doesnt work like that for other items.

    Lean cuts of fresh meat with no fat/skin and no added sauces, dressings, oil etc are free. For all other types of meat not listed in the free foods list. You need to use syns online or the syns calculator.

    I had a look online but the lean lamb mince is around 15g fat per 100g so don't think it's free :(
